The International Conference on Electrical Machines (ICEM) has established itself as an influential and recognised international event, being the only major international conference devoted entirely to electrical machines. This year’s Conference (ICEM 2020) took place virtually for the first time to prioritise the health and safety of the ICEM community. Despite moving online, interest in ICEM 2020 was still very high, over 508 papers were submitted totalling over 1000 authors from across the world.

FEMM Hub Researcher Dr Rafal Wrobel of Newcastle University had his paper ” Opportunities and Challenges of Employing Heat-Pipes in Thermal Management of Electrical Machines” accepted which he presented to a global audience at the end of August.  A recording of his presentation can be found below. If you would like more information or have any questions about Rafal’s research, please email
